These two pictures show reproduction blaster. They look like the blaster pictures.

I call your rant and raise you....Repro’s are criminal - anyone producing them should make it clear they are illegitimate and unloved - otherwise it feels like fraud 😠

I think reproductions are just something that we will all have to live with now but If I was going to make repro's I'd probably still try to make them as close to original as possible but put a letter on the handle that's sunk right into it. That way you wouldn't be able to sand it off (as the handle would be way to thin for a figure to hold it), and it would be hidden once it's in the figures hand.

This would mean that the weapon would be forever marked as reproduction but would look good with the figure and make it very easy to identify. It's hard to know why this isn't already done as I'm sure it would keep both sides happy and mainly only upset people who are trying to pass it off as legit (and we all know where they can go!).

Ian that sounds like a good idea to mark them, but I fear some only make them to trick people so they can make more money :(
